RYNNA ISMAIL: Dear parents, I’ve encountered a strange and worrying incident earlier which had made me wrote this and wanting to share the importance of our childrens’ safety, regardless of their age or locations, at all cost. Thursday, 10th November 2016 around 7.15pm, Simei, Eastpoint Mall at Level 3 (Kids’ Ride Area just opposite SportsLink store): Accompanied my girl to the mentioned...

CASANA: Two tree-falls in one day because of rain in different parts of Singapore. This happened yesterday morning after a heavy that started at about 5.30am. It raises questions as to whether the NParks, which falls under the purview of the Ministry of National Development, is out and about doing its job to ensure the public is safe from old trees. In the morning, a huge tree that fell along the...

ANNA LI: This is in response to your story “Appalling that People’s Favourite Tan Cheng Bock has Been Disqualified from Contesting the Presidency“. I too find it appalling, but more than that, it’s a very big shame. After the last Presidential Election (2011), the only man left who continued to fastidiously walk the ground was Dr Tan Cheng Bock. You didn’t see Tan Kin...

My husband injured in the accident as a China bus driver drive in the red light and my husband couldn’t break immediately and hit into the bus. The bus driver never admit that his wrong.

JAY LOW: Just arrived in SG and met this terrible driver! Very rude and drive dangerously. This is happened on Friday (9 Sept) at 2053 from Changi Airport to Compassvale Link Buangkok. Myself, my Wife and my Daughter just took SMRT Taxi number SHD622xx, driver name LIM xxxx xxxx. He not willing to help to put our luggage into car boot. I was thinking maybe he got a bad day. I just keep quiet and take...

LINDA HO: Please go ahead and share this story around. The world needs to know that bullying is a serious issue that causes depression and even parents losing their child towards it. Any form of bullying should not be taken lightly especially from a authoritative figure. A child can never “beef up” from it nor benefit from it. Not all bullies will back away from after a fight. In fact...

DICKSON: Sharing this poster at Sims Drive put up by the NEA (or town council or whichever agency is responsible). The poster is supposed to warn people about the dangers of mosquitoes and to tell them to take steps to prevent breeding. Instead, it looks like they have become the breeding ground for the mosquitoes. It’s not surprising since they are hung just above the longkang (drain) area,...

DAVE: Recently there were these digital sign board installed in every block, at least in Toh Yi Drive that I lived. These digital sign board does not appeared to be interactive. Rather it displayed static info. Only the top image appears to have rolling updates but from what I observed it was totally useless information. I notice people out of curiosity since its something new, touch here and there...

DERRICK: I’ve been reading the flame war between Shanmugam (Law and Home Affairs Minister) and various Workers’ Party members with great disgust. Here we have a minister using Facebook to launch so many accusations of fraud and corruption against the WP for its handling of AHPETC. Why is a minister being so childish? Is social media really a place for ministers to carry out such activities? Personally,...

JENSEN: Hi, want to highlight this because I think it’s crossing the line. Someone on Gumtree (a local ad post website) is selling tickets to the National Day Parade for S$250. Wah piang I mean if you don’t want to go fair enough lah, but need to jack up the price by so much ah? At least sell the tickets at a reasonable price so that Singaporeans who really want to watch the parade live...

PAUL: I want to share with you this story which I came across on a local forum. I hope that those who employ maids and read this will have more compassion and treat their maids as human beings like themselves and not some cheap labour that you can just lord over and do as you wish. People come here to earn a living, paying their salary is no excuse to make them cater to your every whim and fancy. “Heart...

LEVIN: Wanted to bring to your attention this sighting of a parent resting her child on the railing inside a shopping mall. Did she ever stop to think what would happen if the child starts to fidget, or worse, kick and scream like babies normally do? Those with kids like me will know how hard it is to control a child when they have their moods. One slip and it’s the end!What’s worse is...

Looking at the stories on the different town council gaffes when it comes to trying to stop people from doing things (here, here and here for example), these nails stuck on the walls of HDB flat void decks to prevent kids from playing football shouldn’t be a surprise. The nails were installed on the upper portions of the walls about 12 years ago at over 100 flats in Tampines. The aim was to...

HENRY: There is so only so much you can beat a man. Beat him when he’s up, beat him when he’s down and he will finally cave. Dr Chee speaks about not going down on “bended knee”, but how much more can he take? He’s already over 50 years old and his kids are growing into their teenage years. Do we really expect a man to continue taking a pounding every time he shows his face in public when...
